Catherine the Great hijacked a country she wasn't born to rule. Her prize was a vast empire, awesome wealth and power all built on the backs of slaves, peasants and serfs. To cling to power in a cut-throat world, she would have to overthrow and assassinate her husband, battle the Ottoman Turks to submission and face the wrath of the Russian people in a massive rebellion. Surviving these trials would make Catherine one of the greatest of all Russian rulers, an icon of imperial power.

King Henry VIII of England had everything any man could ever desire. But he blew it all for the sexual favours of Ann Boleyn, a tart-tongued, two-timing, power-hungry gold-digger. King Henry's descent into obsession, violence and brutality went far beyond mere infatuation with Anne Boleyn. Henry wielded power like an axe, to persecute and kill those who didn't meet his needs or back his personal interpretation of God's will. Explore the hidden truth of the mania that spawned Henry's degeneration from pious poster-boy for absolute monarchy to an obese, serial wife-killer and a grotesque caricature of the evils of unchecked power and egotism.

Forty years after it happened, this is the never before told true story of the courage and compassion, the heartbreak and heroes of the Granville Train Disaster. For the first time, survivors and rescuers are reunited to recall the fateful moments on January 18, 1977 when a regular train ride from the Blue Mountains to work, a shopping trip to the city or a school holiday adventure instead became a journey that would end as Australia's worst rail tragedy. The full story behind the crash of the 6.09am Mount Victoria service to Central Station, Sydney, which derailed and brought down Granville's Bold Street Bridge, crushing two crowded carriages and eventually claiming 83 lives.
